I should add that I am pretty puzzled by the color of this ink. When I first used it, I was pretty sure that I saw a green tone. Then I asked my wife and she thinks it has a blue/purple tone. I went back to it a couple of times, sometimes I see green, sometimes I see blue, and sometimes I just see grey.

Great review. I was curious if any one has tried it w/ a Visconti Opera? I just got an Opera (Medium nib) and had a bottle of Aurora Black which bleeds quite heavily. Any suggestions on which ink might help reduce the bleeding??

Thanks for the review. One downside I've noticed with this ink is in a broad or wider nib it becomes more grey than black.
